First New Year's babies

Two Toronto hospitals say the first babies of 2018 were born at the stroke of midnight.

Both St. Michael's Hospital and Humber River Hospital say they each welcomed new babies at exactly 12 a.m. on Jan. 1.

St. Michael's spokesman James Wysotski says a 7-pound, 11-ounce baby girl was born at the hospital as fireworks were going off in nearby Nathan Phillips Square.

In a tweet, Humber River Hospital said a baby named Phillip was born at midnight, closely followed by his twin sister Victoria, who arrived seven seconds later.

In Quebec, a baby was born in Montreal two seconds after midnight, while a baby girl was delivered in Surrey, B.C. nine seconds into the New Year.

All the newest Canadians and their mothers are said to be doing well.
